Geneva, Switzerland (PRWEB) February 19, 2014
RSD, a leading provider of information governance solutions for the enterprise, today announced its full support of Global Information Governance Day (GIGD) on February 20, 2014. Global Information Governance Day, or GIGD, is an international holiday that occurs on the third Thursday in February. The purpose of Global Information Governance Day is to raise the awareness of information governance. When you consider the volume of information being generated by organizations, recognizing the value that information is in enabling business to expand and grow, coupled with the cost and the risk of mis-management, you start to realize that a good information governance strategy impacts the success or failure of the business.
GIGD is all about raising awareness so that organizations start planning (assuming they have not already done so...) a strategy for defining good information governance policies, enforcing those policies across the organization automatically, and measuring the effectiveness of those policies on containing storage cost, controlling information risk, and delivering business value from their information.
“Back in 2008, when we started using the phrase "Information Governance" to describe the plans and capabilities of our RSD GLASS platform that we were building, we were anticipating the day when the market would emerge and embrace the concept of corporate information governance,” said Ed Hallock, Director of Product Marketing at RSD.
In honor of GIGD, RSD will host a live GIGD twitter chat on February 20th, 2014 at 11 am EST using the hashtag #GIGD. This day represents a movement towards something impactful and highlighting the importance information plays in the success of an organization. “Today more than ever before, we are seeing more and more companies embrace information governance and this twitter chat is a great way to drive the conversation forward and help to understand what information governance means to the future of a heavily regulated organization with complex content repositories,” Sandy Gordon, Marketing Specialist at RSD.
